Shinedown Partner With American Foundation For Suicide Prevention
Shinedown are partnering with the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Shinedown will donate $1 for every ticket sold to their upcoming 21-date ‘The Revolutions Live’ U.S. headline tour to the AFSP, the nation’s largest suicide prevention organization that gives those affected by suicide a nationwide community empowered by research, education and advocacy to take action against this leading cause of death.
The members of Shinedown, who have been speaking out about mental health for two decades through their music and by sharing their personal experiences along the way, have long been active supporters of AFSP, including participating in the organization’s annual “Out Of The Darkness” walk in Washington, D.C. to fundraise for the cause. Now, the band are thrilled to expand their support of AFSP with the $1-per-ticket donation.
Shinedown’s The Revolutions Live tour (co-produced by FPC Live and Live Nation and with support from Three Days Grace and From Ashes To New) begins on 3 April, kicking off a run of spring shows that will see the record-breaking band bring their hit album Planet Zero to life live from coast to coast, alongside their biggest hits and fan favourites. Tickets are on sale through Live Nation.
Frontman Brent Smith said: “Partnering with the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention means a great deal to Barry, Zach, Eric and myself. Our appreciation for this incredible organization has grown year after year as we have witnessed the life-saving work that AFSP does and the resources it offers to address this urgent public health crisis that has far-reaching impacts on families and communities. Please remember — the world is a much better place with you in it. We are looking forward to donating $1 from every ticket sold during our upcoming tour to AFSP to help support this very important cause.”
Shinedown just released its latest music video for their new single, A Symptom Of Being Human, a standout track from Planet Zero. Unfolding with gentle acoustic guitar, soaring strings, delicate piano and a powerful vocal delivery from Smith, A Symptom Of Being Human celebrates the beauty of our individual differences and embraces the ups and downs of life, while showcasing Shinedown’s gift for making us feel connected through our common humanity.
